    “Needs a deep clean including windows that need the returns cleaning.”

    The doors haven’t been cleaned for years very the tops of the panels very dirty.

    The doors haven’t been cleaned for years very the tops of the panels very dirty. The sofa very un comfortable. Sorry not a good review.

    - Maggie, June 2022

    We are always upset when we receive negative comments and sad that guests have not enjoyed their stay as we try hard to make things special for them. We are just next door and always hope that people will let us know if there are any issues while they are here. However, although we do our best to be friendly and approachable, we appreciate this might not be easy. We will of course look at the issues raised and deal with as necessary. With regards to the sofa, this does receive mixed comments, some people loving it. We are considering a replacement but have not been able to agree on it so far ! Property Owner

About the location

THORNFORD

Sherborne 3 miles.

A most attractive north west Dorset village, Thornford is only 3 miles from the ancient town of Sherborne. Over 20 historic cottages make up the conservation area at the centre of the village, which boasts a pub, local shop and a Post Office, as well as a 'halt' on the railway line linking Weymouth with Bristol. The village is surrounded by an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, bursting with lovely rural walks, and just a short drive takes you into Sherborne, well known for its castle and abbey, and where you can browse the array of interesting shops and restaurants. Good transport links ensure that visits further afield to historic Bath, Stourhead, and Salisbury, as well as the stunning Jurassic Coast, are easily made. This really is a great touring base for visiting this lovely area.
